Security System Upgrade – When and Why is it Important?
Most of house owners get overwhelmingly proud upon installing their very first security system. However, they often don’t consider a painful truth – it’s not an once-in-a-lifetime investment. To work most efficiently, every security system needs an upgrade once in a while.
Some people keep security systems that are over a decade old. They tend to think as long as it works they don’t need a new one. On one hand they are right – why purchase new equipment if the old one still works? However, often they don’t consider an essential option to raise efficiency of the security system: upgrade.
Older security systems tend to use cameras that were the best in their time, but not at the present. For example, the quality of a video they capture may appear bad, especially after zooming in, thus identifying thieves it caught may appear impossible.
With time, other faults become noticeable too. The motion detectors are not as sensible and well developed as they are today, and so they can give a lot of false alarms due to errors.
The biggest danger of security systems that have not undergone an upgrade is that most of them still rely on a landline. Potential burglars can easily disable the entire system by simply cutting the line off, leaving your entire house unprotected. A security system upgrade would take your house to the safe side, making it independent from the landline and using wireless monitoring via cell towers instead.
The beauty of security system upgrade lies in convenience it offers. An upgrade of the old panel board, for example, will allow you to use your home security system remotely, via smartphone. Even small things like keypads can be upgraded to a whole new concept. Instead of plain buttons you will get features like date, time and even weather forecast.
